ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

13.                   CONGRATULATIONS TO MS. BRITTANY NIEMIEC (BRADDOCK DISTRICT)  (10:11 a.m.)

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova stated that Ms. Brittany Niemiec, a Braddock District resident, graduated in June from Robinson Secondary School.  Ms. Niemiec finished the school year on the A-B Honor Roll, and she was inducted into the Business Honor Society and Teacher Business Leaders of America.  The chief distinction about her high school experience, however, was that she was the only female on the boy’s ice hockey team.  She will be attending Radford University this fall.

 

Accordingly, Vice-Chairman Bulova relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Niemiec to appear before the Board on August 2 to be congratulated on her noteworthy achievement and to be wished well as she embarks on her college career.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 

14.                   SMART GROWTH BEGINS AT THE LOCAL LEVEL  (10:12 a.m.)

 

As one of the Board’s appointees to the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ (COG) Metropolitan Development Policy Committee (MDPC), Supervisor Bulova provided the Board with copies of the recently approved CD entitled “Smart Growth Begins at the Local Level.” 

 

Supervisor Bulova said that in conjunction with an MDPC approved initiative for a regional/local “Planning Dialogue Series,” work began in 2000 to consider ways to encourage information sharing among area local officials and to provide a better understanding of the regional context and impact of local planning policies and actions.  The CD that she distributed was approved by COG in April and she acknowledged that several Board Members voted to approve its distribution and circulation.  It is an important component of the COG Board’s recently-approved three-year policy focus on growth-related issues in metropolitan Washington.  The CD provides examples of “Smart Growth” (walkable communities, mixed use, transit-oriented development, et cetera) throughout the region, including several in the County.  Noting that smart growth means something different to all people, she said that the CD illustrates graphically and effectively some common principles that make for good land use planning.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to provide the CD “Smart Growth Begins at the Local Level” to County officials who staff the comprehensive planning review process, and who support the district Comprehensive Plan task forces, along with the suggestion that the CD be used as one of the tools to help educate citizens about sound land use planning.  She further moved that the Board direct the staff of the Office of Public Affairs to publicize the existence of the CD, and how to attain it, which can be used as a resource and learning tool, to organizations such as the following:

 

·      Neighborhood associations and civic groups.

 

·      Environmental organizations.

 

·      Staffs from local academic institutions such as George Mason University and the University of Virginia.

 

·      Others who would find the CD helpful.

 

Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion regarding an upcoming COG exercise, smart growth on Richmond Highway, the definition of smart growth, and the CD as a tool for the County’s land use committees, the question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 

Acting-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Vice-Chairman Bulova.

 

15.                   TAX PAYMENT SERVICE CHARGES  (10:18 a.m.)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board considered an Information Item regarding personal property taxes.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#10.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins stated that her office received telephone inquiries regarding the cost of a service charge associated with paying real estate taxes using the website.  Upon further inspection by her staff, she learned that the Department of Tax Administration (DTA) had also received inquiries regarding the service charge. 

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that residents are viewing the associated web pages and responding to the advantages of paying taxes without visiting the Government Center.  She said that they are not given enough information on the web regarding service charges.  She cited the language on the web which notes that there is a convenience fee, for each real estate tax bill, that is charged to a credit card.  However, it is not until the end of the process that the taxpayer learns the exact fee.  Taxpayers have indicated that they would like to know the fee before they start the process.

 


Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct DTA staff to:

 

·      Investigate whether the County can lower or cap the service fee to reduce the cost.

 

·      Edit the County web page to reflect the cost one should expect to pay and indicate this at the beginning of the process.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

16.                   MEALS ON WHEELS (MOW) NEEDS VOLUNTEERS  (10:20 a.m.)

 

As listed in her written Board Matter, Supervisor Hudgins described the mission of the Fairfax Area Agency on Aging and the benefits of its programs, including the MOW program.  She said that MOW currently has a critical need for volunteers.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to post an appeal to all the appropriate County dissemination outlets so that senior adults may continue to receive this service and that staff can recruit new volunteers through the hotline (703-324-5406).  Without objection, it was so ordered. 

 

17.                   LIFE INSURANCE AWARENESS MONTH  (10:22 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins announced that September is celebrated nationally as Life Insurance Awareness Month.  To promote greater community awareness for the need to consider personal financial planning, the Northern Virginia Association of Insurance and Financial Professionals contacted her office to request that the County recognize that national observance.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to prepare and send a resolution declaring September as “Life Insurance Awareness Month” in Fairfax County.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 

18.                   RECOGNITION OF CHIEF DONALD BURNS OF THE VIENNA VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT  (10:23 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that Chief Donald Burns of the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department accepted a new position of employment with the federal government and is moving to Colorado.  She noted his leadership and the accomplishments of the Vienna Volunteers.

 

To recognize Chief Burns’ more than ten years of service to the Vienna community, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite him to appear before the Board on August 2 to receive a resolution to honor his dedicated service.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 

19.                   TREE CLEARING ALONG THE WASHINGTON AND OLD DOMINION (W&OD) TRAIL (HUNTER MILL AND PROVIDENCE DISTRICTS)  (10:24 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth stated that this Board Matter was presented jointly with Supervisor Hudgins and Chairman Connolly.  Supervisor Smyth said that on Friday, July 23, she emailed Board Members a letter and resolution pertaining to the W&OD Trail, copies of which she also distributed around the dais.  The letter is to be signed by Chairman Connolly pending approval of this motion and is addressed to the State Corporation Commission (SCC).

 

Specifically, the letter requests that the SCC direct Dominion Virginia Power to suspend all non-emergency clearance activities along the W&OD Trail pending the resolution of issues that are outlined in the letter.  Delegates Jim Scott and Steve Shannon convened a meeting on June 28, 2004, to discuss the issue of clear-cutting along the trail.  At the Board’s June 21 meeting, it expressed concern over the impacts of the line clearance.  Subsequently, the Tree Commission passed a resolution dealing with this matter, and Supervisor Smith distributed copies of it.  She also provided copies of the report of the task force that was initiated at the June 28 meeting with Delegates Scott and Shannon.

 

Therefore, on behalf of Chairman Connolly, Supervisor Hudgins, and herself, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board:

 

·      Approve and send the letter to Chairman Theodore V. Morrison, Jr. of the SCC.

 

·      Endorse the Tree Commission resolution of June 23, 2004. 

 

Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion and asked to amend the motion to communicate with the distribution side of the organization in addition to the transmission side by circulating this action to increase awareness.  This was accepted.

 

The question was called on the motion, as amended, and it carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 

20.                   RECOGNITION OF MS. JEANETTE STEWART (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (10:27 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth referred to the outstanding work that has been initiated by Jeanette Stewart of Falls Church.  Recently Ms. Stewart was named EcoSteward of the Year by the EcoStewards Alliance.


Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to:

 

·      Prepare a Certificate of Recognition for Ms. Stewart on behalf of the Board for her environmental stewardship and leadership in environmentally-oriented projects and initiatives.

 

·      Invite Ms. Stewart to appear before the Board at a future meeting to receive this recognition.

 

Supervisor DuBois seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 

21.                   RECOGNITION OF MS. DIVYA NETTIMI (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (10:28 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth announced that one of her constituents, Ms. Divya Nettimi of Oakton, was one of 40 finalists in the nationwide 2004 Intel Science Talent Search.  She also was one of 20 students chosen by USA Today for its 2004 High School Academic Team and received a Micron Science and Technology Scholarship.  Ms. Nettimi recently graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology and will be attending Stanford University in the fall.  Supervisor Smyth outlined some of Ms. Nettimi’s many accomplishments.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board direct staff of the Office of Public Affairs to:

 

·      Prepare a certificate of recognition for Ms. Nettimi to recognize her outstanding commitment to the citizens of the County and to the field of science.

 

·      Invite Ms. Nettimi and Providence District School Board Member Phillip A. Niedzielski-Eichner to appear before the Board at the September 13 meeting to receive this recognition.

 

Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

22.                   AUTHORIZATION FOR STORMWATER ADVISORY COMMITTEE (10:30 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Gross stated that this Board Matter comes forward from discussion concerning long-term funding solutions for County stormwater management programs at the July 19, 2004, joint meeting of the Board’s Environmental and Development Process Committees.  In particular, that discussion included a presentation on the implementation of a stormwater utility fee as a possible financing option.

 

                        Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved, per the recommendation of staff and the Committee, that the Board:

 

·        Authorize the appointment of a stakeholder-based Stormwater Advisory Committee to provide community feedback and dialogue.

 

·        Review the list of relevant interest groups and organizations suggested for seats on the committee and respond to either Supervisor DuBois or herself so that recommended appointees could be considered at the August 2, 2004, meeting of the Board.

 

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 

23.                   DISPOSITION OF TREES AND OTHER NON-NORMAL HOUSEHOLD REFUSE  (10:33 a.m.)

 

                        Supervisor Gross raised the issue of the disposition of trees taken down by homeowners and left curbside, assuming that they would be picked up.  Supervisor Gross pointed out that trees are not normal household refuse.  The County will pick up some items for households which are in a sanitary service district, but it is made very clear in the booklet that is sent out to residents of the sanitary districts that the County is responsible for the disposal of normal household waste only, not for any debris generated by contractors working on their property including tree removal, lot clearing, remodeling, or construction debris.  Supervisor Gross further stated that since Hurricane Isabel last year, damaged trees are now being taken down and the dumping of this debris along streets and roadways is becoming a serious problem           .

 

                        General discussion ensued with the consensus being that this was a Countywide problem that was not limited to brush and trees, but extended to household appliances and other non-normal household items which poses an increasingly difficult problem.

 

                        Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the County Executive to work with the Office of Public Affairs and the industry to develop some criteria, primarily information people need to know, to determine what is not normal household trash and how to dispose of that trash properly.  Supervisor Smyth seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 


24.                   NO BOARD MATTERS FOR SUPERVISOR FREY (SULLY DISTRICT)  (10:38       a.m.)

                       

                        Supervisor Frey announced that he had no Board Matters to present today.

25.                   CROSSING GUARDS  (10:38 p.m.)

 

Supervisor McConnell encouraged citizens to pursue becoming crossing guards for schools.  For further information, contact the County Executive's office.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Kauffman and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to publicize this information.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Acting-Chairman Kauffman returned the gavel to Vice-Chairman Bulova.

 

26.                   CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR MS. ALICE STARR (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT)  (10:40 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois stated that on July 20, 2004, over 400 friends gathered at Claude Moore Colonial Farm at Turkey Run, representing over 36 community and professional organizations which Ms. Alice Starr has impacted with her leadership, to wish her and her husband good fortune as they will be moving to California, although they will continue to maintain their home in McLean.

 

Supervisor DuBois referred to her written Board Matter and outlined Ms. Starr's accomplishments.

 

Therefore, Supervisor DuBois moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Starr to appear before the Board on August 2, 2004, to acknowledge and thank her for her many years of dedicated service to the citizens of the County.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 

27.                   CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR MR. JACK WILBERN (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT)  (10:42 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois announced that Mr. Jack Wilbern, a longtime member of the Revitalization Policy Committee, a past president of the McLean Planning Committee and the current president of the McLean Revitalization Corporation, is returning to private life.

 

Supervisor DuBois referred to her written Board Matter and outlined Mr. Wilbern's accomplishments.

 

Therefore, Supervisor DuBois moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Wilbern to appear before the Board to receive its thanks and best wishes for his years of volunteer service to McLean and to the County.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 

28.                   "ADEQUATE OUTFALL" ISSUES  (10:45 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois noted that site plans in many of the supervisor districts are being delayed or denied due to "adequate outfall" issues.  This problem stems from a legal challenge to a County site plan where the County did not prevail.  She expressed concerned that an equitable resolution to the problem be brought quickly to the Board.

 

Supervisor DuBois said that in the Dranesville District, for example, the developer of a small commercial development at the edge of an existing eight acre shopping center is being required by the County to remediate a long-standing inadequate outfall problem at the center.  The County owns no easements at the outfall and the applicant has been required to get "letters of permission" to construct a $30,000 drainage improvement.  This proposed project, which totals only 9,500 square feet and drains only five percent of the site, is configured to actually reduce the amount of impervious surface currently draining to the existing outfall.  Current rules require that any project in excess of one percent of a site be required to bring an outfall up to code.

 

Supervisor DuBois said that despite an obvious reluctance to absorb the financial burden of constructing this improvement, the owner formally contacted the three affected landowners to secure construction access.  Two of the three owners agreed, but the third refuses to give permission and, in a written response, describes the required "rip rap" as a "hazard to his children" and an "attractive nuisance." The Office of Site Development Services, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) has advised that this project cannot go forward.

 

Supervisor DuBois said that it is her understanding that a DPWES task force has been assembled to work out a Countywide approach for projects which are impacted by this new policy.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Dubois asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the staff to provide the Board with a full briefing in September on the specific nature of the problem and proposed policy solutions that are under consideration.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

29.                   TAXES  (10:45 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois said that a Dranesville constituent recently provided her with a Wall Street Journal article analyzing voter reaction to the surge in local property taxes nationwide.

 

Since it does not appear that residential real estate sales in the County show any signs of softening, Supervisor DuBois suggested that Board Members may want to read the article as the Board begins planning for the Fiscal Year 2006 budget cycle.  Just as in Virginia, many localities in other states appear to be taking on a larger share of costs related to education, infrastructure improvements, public safety, health care, pensions and roads.

 

30.                   BREAST CANCER SCREENING  (10:46 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois announced that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer in its early stages.  She added that a full recovery is expected.

 

Supervisor DuBois urged women to schedule their mammogram screenings.

 

31.                   VIRGINIA NATIONAL MARINA DAY  (10:49 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland noted that August 14 is National Marina Day and Mr. George Stevens of the Belle Haven Marina asked that the Board adopt a proclamation regarding Virginia Marina Day.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board adopt the resolution proclaiming August 14, 2004, as "Virginia National Marina Day" in Fairfax County.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 

32.                   RESOLUTION ON MOPEDS AND SMALL MOTORIZED VEHICLES FROM THE MOUNT VERNON COUNCIL OF CITIZENS' ASSOCIATIONS, INCORPORATED  (10:50 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said that the Chairman of the Public Safety Committee for the Mount Vernon Council of Citizens Associations followed the discussion on mopeds and small motorized vehicles during the July 12 Board meeting.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board:

 

·        Consider the resolution contained in his written Board Matter.

 

·        Direct staff to report with a recommendation on whether to include it in the Legislative Program for the next session of the General Assembly.

 

Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

 


33.                   CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR MR. FRED C. MORIN (LEE DISTRICT)  (10:51 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Kauffman announced that Mr. Fred C Morin has tendered his resignation from the board of directors of Fairfax Water (formerly the Fairfax County Water Authority).  Since 1961, Mr. Morin has overseen the quality of the water supply, serving the Water Authority as the Lee District representative, as chairman (1969 to 2002) and as chairman emeritus (2002 to July 2004).  Mr. Morin was the longest serving appointee to any of the scores of boards, authorities, and commissions.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to invite Mr. Morin to appear before the Board at a future meeting for formal recognition and that a resolution be prepared to honor Mr. Morin.  Supervisor Mc         Connell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being absent.

35.                   BEST WISHES FOR MR. ALAN WEBB (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT) AND OTHERS PARTICIPATING IN THE OLYMPICS  (10:54 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that since 1999, when he broke the national high school record for the mile set by Mr. Jim Ryun 36 years earlier, all of Reston has been watching track star Alan Webb.  Since July 18, 2004, when he won the 1,500-meter race at the US Olympic trials, the nation is watching him.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins extended best wishes and support to Mr. Webb on his way to participate in the Olympic Games in Athens.

Supervisor Kauffman extended best wishes to any other County Olympians.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Kauffman and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite appropriate Olympians to appear before the Board to be recognized for their accomplishments.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Acting-Chairman Kauffman returned the gavel to Vice-Chairman Bulova.

 


36.                   APPOINTMENT TO FAIRFAX WATER (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (10:55 a.m.)
